The Nostalgia Files: ‘Scrooged’ (1988)

5 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

  Scrooged

Written by Mitch Glazer and Michael O’Donoghue

Directed by Richard Donner

USA, 1988

The story of Scrooge is one of literature’s most enduring and beloved tales. It is a universal tale of redemption and a staple of Christmas lore. The Bill Murray vehicle Scrooged was released in 1988 and it is one of the more unique adaptations of Charles Dickens’ masterpiece. It isn’t your typical take on Scrooge but that’s what makes it all the more fun. There are funny cameos and quirky action sequences all firmly anchored by both Murray’s brilliant lead performance and Richard Donner’s solid direction. With Christmas soon coming upon us, Scrooged is the perfect cinematic gem to be viewed with the whole family.

The film is pretty straightforward and focuses on Frank Cross (Murray), a bitter TV executive, who takes out his frustration on his lowly assistant Grace (Alfre Woodard »

What Movie Have You Watched the Most? The Hitfix Staff Answers

27 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Everybody has that one movie that they've watched so many times, "knowing it by heart" doesn't even begin to describe the relationship. It's the film that you drop everything to watch when it comes on TV, or that you bought and wore out the VHS copy, and then the DVD and the Blu-Ray... and you're still happy to watch it again on Netflix. Maybe it all started with what your family liked to watch (or what they hated) or what ended up in your stocking at holiday time, or what you fell in love with at the theater.

Robin Lord Taylor Talks Gotham, The Positive Fan Response To His Performance, Penguin’s Genius and Insanity, Working with Carol Kane, and More

24 November 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the biggest break-out performances of the current Fall TV season is that of Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin, on the Fox drama series Gotham.  He’s made the most of every moment that he’s been given, and he’s turned the character into someone unpredictable, dangerous, funny, sad and sympathetic. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Robin Lord Taylor talked about how this entire experience is so big that it’s hard to wrap his brain around it, finding the perfect balance of evil genius and batshit crazy, how long all of The Penguin’s manipulations can continue before it all blows up in his face, where things are at between The Penguin and Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), having the amazing Carol Kane play his mother, and how Oswald Cobblepot is embracing the slur and fully becoming The Penguin.  Check »

Tina Fey’s Ellie Kemper-Led Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Moves To Netflix; Renewed For Season 2

24 November 2014 9:41 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

30 Rock creator Tina Fey’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a comedy set to star The Office‘s Ellie Kemper, is moving from NBC to Netflix, where it has been pre-emptively renewed for a second season.

NBC originally snagged the comedy, about a woman who escapes from a doomsday cult and starts life over in New York, following a bidding war involving multiple major networks. However, the show, which Fey co-exec produces with her former 30 Rock partner Robert Carlock, was left off the network’s fall slate and never received a time slot, despite having been ordered straight to series.

Said NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt:

“When the opportunity arose for Tina Fey and Robert Carlock to premiere their new show on Netflix with a two-season commitment, we decided this was the best possible scenario to launch this captivating new series. While it was originally developed for NBC, we have a »

Netflix Picks Up Tina Fey's Next Comedy

Tina Fey's first TV comedy since 30 Rock is heading to Netflix. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which stars Ellie Kemper (The Office) as a woman who escapes a doomsday cult and starts a new life in New York, will debut on Netflix in March.

Review: 'Gotham' - 'The Mask'

10 November 2014 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Gotham" coming up just as soon as I ask you for your broach... Last week's episode, "Penguin's Umbrella," pared things down to just the rising mob war, and was by far the best and most coherent hour of "Gotham" so far. But it's the kind of episode that was effective precisely because the show can't do it every week, and with "The Mask," we were back to the show's wide-spread formula, for good and for ill. Jim and Harvey's investigation was one of the least compelling so far, while the episode did better at advancing several of the story and character arcs. The most successful of these involved Bruce returning to school and running afoul of bullies looking to take advantage of his emotional stress (as teenagers are wont to do). The worry when Fox announced that "Gotham" would include an adolescent Bruce Wayne as a »

Before I Go To Sleep | Review

Sleep, My Love: Joffe’s Effective Woman in Peril Thriller

Adapting S.J. Watson’s pulpy novel Before I Go to Sleep for his second feature film (2010’s remake of British noir Brighton Rock, starring Helen Mirren, was his neglected debut), screenwriter cum director Rowan Joffe forges onward in material that seems veritably inveigled with the past. Many may be pleased with the surprisingly tense platitudes Joffe ascends to with this material, though that may be due to the fact that films of this ilk are generally made so shoddily that they fold before the third act. No, Joffe understands a thing or two about fun twists and engaging tension (take his screenplay for the 2007 zombie sequel 28 Weeks Later, for instance), and this sophomore effort feels a bit like those women-in-peril films that were a staple of 90s suburban nightmare cinema.

Weekly reviews: Gotham: S1E2 'Selina Kyle'

30 October 2014 6:55 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Greeting Gothamites!

You should be aware folks, but in case you're not... spoilers ahead. Go watch the episode. It’s worth it.

This episodes foray into the deep, dark den of depravity begins with a disappointing bout of parenting from Alfred when it appears that little-Batman is self-harming. Alfred’s approach to parenting is similar to passive-aggressive, except that instead of passive he’s cockney and instead of aggressive he’s abusive. No wonder the kid grows up skulking through the night and unable to maintain a loving relationship. Seriously though, the hell is wrong with Alfred? He’s relaxed one moment and shouting the next – never mind getting Bruce the help he needs: get Alfred’s Bipolar disorder diagnosed now! However, one thing I noted was that, although Bruce constantly reassures everyone that he's alright self-harming, he always looks away, ashamed – a very pointed and belaboured point in the direction. »

Gotham Season 1 Episode 6 Review – ‘Spirit of the Goat’

29 October 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews episode 6 of Gotham

Something from the past comes back to haunt Gotham’s police department, while things come to a head for one of their newest recruits…

Character development for the sake of it within the confines of a burgeoning series is dicey. If done badly then the episode is left forever blowing in the wind, segregated and awkward alongside its more mainstream compatriots. However when done well and tied into a story worth the telling, this rarefied breed broadens and benefits everything else. Thankfully this example falls into the latter category.

Essentially a two hander between Ben McKenzie and Donal Logue who appear to be finding their feet within the Gotham perimeters, there is less painful dialogue and more entertainment on display this week. An absence of back catalogue Batman characters and the expectation that comes with them is refreshing, while a lack of pantomime villainy »

Gotham Recap: No Heroes, Just Goats

27 October 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week’s episode of Fox’s Gotham should spark fresh discussion about what on the freshman drama is working, and what is not — if only because of the markedly different character mix that was on display.

I, for one, was quite compelled by “Spirit of the Goat,” so I am left to wonder: Is that in part because Fish Mooney and the lumbering “crime syndicate” storyline was 100 percent absent?

Or was it because of the significant bit of character work we got this week with Detective Harvey Bullock? Donal Logue is an immensely watchable actor, but the fact is »

The 50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 Years: #40-31

14 October 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny.  We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »
